Summary, etc.:
The acclaimed author of The Forever War imagines a future in which most of humanity has abandoned Earth, living in man-made habitats orbiting a troubled world. In Worlds, Worlds Apart, and Worlds Enough and Time, the acclaimed Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of The Forever War imagines a near future rife with exhilarating and terrifying possibilities, when hundreds of thousands of human beings have abandoned the Earth's surface to live in man-made habitats orbiting the troubled planet. Haldeman's science fiction saga follows young World dweller Marianne O'Hara of New New York from her arrival on Earth as a postgraduate student who becomes seduced by radical politics, through her coming of age amidst the Worlds' war and the habitats' total devastation, and ultimately to Marianne's emergence as a leader and quite possibly the last hope of the human race as it heads toward the stars. Stephen King said of the first book in Haldeman's trilogy, "There are scenes in Worlds I will remember forever." These gripping novels will enthrall anyone interested in the future-that of our planet and of the human race.
